Here on the El Wayno Loco Show, we start each year off by paying our respects to Music Losses of the previous year. This year is no different; although it seemed like we lost a LOT of folks in 2015.
There are many parts to this show; some really long tributes; some short; folks you've heard of and hopefully some folks you've not. Because of the gigantic musical stature of some of these folks, the tributes are quite deep and extended.
This program is comprised of 4 downloadable parts. The total running length is a little more than 17.5 hours. Seeing as the show is being initially posted on New Year's Day, why not make a day of it? Download these puppies, turn up yer speakers, put your feet up and let the show inform your day. Or weekend. Who knows?
Millennium Stadium in Cardiff chock full of thanks to my Associate Producer Peter Sullivan for assistance above and beyond gathering songs for this annual Magilla of a show! Couldn't do it with you.
The El Wayno Loco Show will return on 9 January 2016.
Happy New Year! Roll on 2016!!
